Things I've read since I checked in last:
#13: Terry Pratchett, Guards, Guards.
The first Pratchett I've read since I burned out on Discworld in college. Clever and well-written, as you would expect of Pterry. But I'm not really in love, because it's not really my sort of thing.
#14: Greg Bear, Quantico.
Very clever, and I liked the female lead a lot, though I kept having issues with the romance plot, and I felt as if the male characters were a bit one-note.
#15: Hunter S. Thompson, Hell's Angels
Yes, I suffer for my art.
#16: Jim C. Hines, The Stepsister Scheme
I really liked this, which surprised me, because light fantasy is usually not my thing--see above, Pratchett. But this is a charming smart little book that handles some hard topics well.
Good job, Jim!
#17: Sharman Apt Russell, Hunger: An Unnatural History
#18: Christopher Wills, Yellow Fever, Black Goddess
Full of nifty horrible details I will be using.
#19: Todd Tucker, The Great Starvation Experiment
Fascinating topic, manipulative treatment. Not bad for all that, anyway, but I would have liked less melodrama.
#20: Neil Gaiman, Odd & the Frost Giants (ARC)
This is awfully cute, and full of all the shiny, shiny detail I expect of Neil's mythological work. I'd buy it for kids I know.
